TORONTO, July 5, 2024 /CNW/ – CULT Food Science Corp. (“CULT” or the “Company”) (CSE: CULT) (OTC: CULTF) (FRA: LN0), a disruptive food technology platform pioneering the commercialization of lab grown meat and cellular agriculture to reshape the global food industry, is pleased to announce that the Company has closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement (“Private Placement“) of units (“Units“) previously announced on June 10, 2024, raising gross proceeds of C$1,426,500 through the sale of 5,706,000 Units at a price of C$0.25 per Unit.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one common share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant“). Each Warrant issued under the first tranche of the Private Placement is exercisable for one Common Share at a price of C$0.35 per share until July 5, 2026 pursuant to applicable securities laws.

In connection with the first tranche of the Private Placement, the Company paid aggregate cash finder’s fees of $10,500 and issued 21,000 finder’s warrants (each, a “Finder Warrant“) to certain arm’s-length parties, each Finder Warrant being exercisable for one Common Share at a price of $0.35 until July 5, 2026 pursuant to applicable securities laws.

The net proceeds from the first tranche of the Private Placement are expected to be used to advance Noochies!, the flagship brand of the Company’s subsidiary, Further Foods Inc., for marketing, and for working capital and general corporate purposes. All securities issued pursuant to the first tranche of the Private Placement are subject to a four month and one day hold period expiring November 5, 2024, pursuant to National Instrument 45-105 – Prospectus Exemptions.

In conjunction with closing the first tranche of the Private Placement, CULT settled debt in an aggregate amount of C$277,200 by issuing an aggregate of 1,108,800 Units at a price of C$0.25 per Unit. 508,800 of the securities issued pursuant to the debt settlement are subject to a four month and one day hold period expiring November 5, 2024, pursuant to National Instrument 45-105 – Prospectus Exemptions. 600,000 of the securities issued pursuant to the debt settlement are not subject to a hold period, pursuant to Ontario Securities Commission Rule 72-503 – Distributions Outside Canada.

An officer of the Company participated in the debt settlement transactions, and such officer’s transaction is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). Such transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the transaction does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.

Management Commentary

“We are very pleased to announce the closing of our first tranche of financing. This round of funding is a crucial milestone for the Company as it will unlock the next phase of our growth. This new capital will accelerate the marketing and sales efforts around Noochies! and expanding our distribution throughout North America. It will also allow us to expand upon our efforts to defend our intellectual property and pursue joint venture agreements around ingredient supply, as well as making new strategic investments into cellular agriculture companies who are aligned with our mission. I see this as an incredibly exciting inflection point for building value for our shareholders and establishing CULT as a leader in food technology. Further, we are very pleased to settle outstanding fees and salaries owed to current and former management team members who are aligned with the opportunity in front of us and elected to take share based compensation instead of cash. We have been having a wide range of conversations with institutional capital allocators and individual investors across North America, including a recent roadshow in New York City, and look forward to closing the remainder of this private placement in the near future,” said Mitchell Scott, CEO of CULT.
